And Before I Go Again...

More fun stuff, before I hit the road again tomorrow. I can't wait until things slow down - there's a community herb garden right behind my house that I've been dying to rant about, but just haven't had the time. On to the links:

  • I know this is probably no laughing matter, but it's hard to take an affliction known as the "Cum Cum Disease" seriously. The best thing about this article is the quote from the Manga artist, who I suppose serves as some sort of expert on women's health in this context. I can just imagine the conversation that took place between the writer and the editor:
Editor: "The story's OK, but it's missing something. Maybe a quote from an expert in this field?"

Writer: "You mean, like a gynecologist or something?"

Editor: "Yeah. Or maybe just someone who's slept with a lot of women."

Writer: "Great idea! I'll see if we can talk to any professional athletes. Or better yet, a Manga artist."

  • So, Sacha Baron Cohen tried to pull his Borat routine in New York on some unsuspecting American. The intended target didn't quite get the humor and, accordingly, started beating Borat's ass. The pummelling would have lasted indefinitely if it weren't for Dr. House, who managed to diffuse the situation. I can't begin to tell you how much this story amuses me.
  • "Bon Anniversaire." Hilarious.
  • Gotta hand it to the Washington Post for staying ahead of the news cycle. According to this article, Clarendon is turning into a soulless, overcommercialized yuppie haven. Next wek, the Post is going to run an article about how there are a lot of interns on the Hill.
  • This is why I'm smarter than your average Wall Street analyst: this guy needed a "text-book thick Excel model" to go 5-1 in his fantasy football league. I have no proprietary model, and I'm 9-0. So have some. (Can I have a job?)
  • I personally think butterflies are disgusting creatures, but some people are willing to pay $95 for a dozen.
  • I didn't read this article, so I don't know what it's about. I just couldn't get past the headline: "Man who put puppies in trash is given them back."
  • Here's another article from the Post Gazette with a curious headline: "Black Edinboro student sends racist e-mails to blacks." Why is this headline is present tense? Is he still sending these racist e-mails? How about now?
  • I think it's official: O.J. Simpson is reprehensible.
  • In conclusion, my Hoyas are on the cover of Sports Illustrated! Another futile season is in the making.


  • Thanks, Sports Illustrated.

    You couldn't have put Old Dominion on the cover last week???

  • Seriously, who didn't see that loss coming after that cover? Here's my prediction - we won't even make the tourney this year...
